Female-centered TV series have been a trend in China in the past few years. It seems like the portray of those heroines have contributed to improving female representation through media and promoting feminism. However, the objectification of women still exists and is deep-rooted. This paper is going to look at how the changes in female-centered Chinese TV series reflected the changes in feminism and female representation in real life. The research finds that although the main theme of this kind of series have changed from pursuing love to pursuing career, female images were still represented as to be saved and innocent.
